Kate Hudson InStyle
Kate Hudson has one of the sunniest representations in Hollywood — and now she’s trying to make that positive attitude catch on around her, even in famously fickle Hollywood.
“The negativity is just so vast,” she says in the July issue of InStyle. “Will everybody stop being so damned judgmental? If someone wants to go get butt implants, then sure, go get butt implants. The real question is, How do they treat the person next to them? Are they a-holes or are they awesome?”
She deals with the stress of a constant swarm of photographers with a little mental exercise (“I just look at the paparazzi and mentally cut their heads off!”) but there is one area on which she’s not willing to overlook the negativity, and that’s the role of women in film. “Do women still have a more difficult time in the industry? In terms of what they get paid and getting movies made, that’s just a factual yes. Nobody can debate it.”
“My mom [Goldie Hawn] was a trailblazer,” Hudson continues. “She was one of the first women after Katharine Hepburn to produce her own films. She had this extremely fascinating public image, but behind the scenes there was a real, persevering strength — wanting to get things done, fighting for what she believed in, and being successful with it.”
